Quips & Quotes

"The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink."

George Orwell (1903 - 1950), "Politics and the English Language", 1946
